The Romeria of La Vinuela

A Romeria is a religious pilgrimage wich has it roots in the Catholic faith. It involves a parade of cars, horse drawn carts and people on foot going on a journey that ends in a place considered holy. One of the most famous Romeria's is that of the Nuestra Senora del Rocio. During the first weekend of June the three Saints (Virgen del Carmen, San Jose en Virgen de La Milagrosa) representing the villages of Los Gomez, La Vinuela en Los romanes are brought together at a large lake in the hills of Vinuela. There the inhabitants of the three villages gather and stay for three days to eat, drink, sing and dance in honour of their Saints.
